Stone by day, warriors by night, New York City has unlikely protectors in the form of the Gargoyles! Read the official description of Gargoyles below, courtesy of Disney Enterprises, Inc.:
This show features a clan of nocturnal creatures known as Gargoyles that turn to stone during the day. The show focuses on a particular clan led by a gargoyle named Goliath. This clan lived in medieval Scotland where they helped protect a castle. One day they were cursed by a wizard to remain in their stone form until their castle “rose above the clouds.” In the present day, billionaire David Xanatos purchases the Gargoyles’ castle and has it reconstructed atop his New York skyscraper. The castle having thus “risen above the clouds”, the six gargoyles of the clan awake. In trying to adjust to their new world they are aided by a sympathetic NYPD officer, Elisa Maza, and quickly come into conflict with Xanatos. In addition to dealing with the gargoyles’ attempts to adjust to modern New York, there are also various supernatural threats to their safety and to the world at large.
